United’s website now notes:
“Sir Alex Ferguson and the BBC have decided to put behind them the difficulties which led to Sir Alex feeling unable to appear on BBC programmes.
R20;This follows a meeting between Sir Alex and the BBC’s director general, Mark Thompson, and BBC North director Peter Salmon, and the issues have been resolved to the satisfaction of both parties.
R20;Sir Alex will now make himself available to the BBC for Match of the Day, Radio 5 Live and other outlets as agreed.
R20;No further comment will be made by either party on this issue.”
No disrespect to Micky Phelan but I for one am looking forward to seeing Sir Alex back on MOTD giving the post match intereviews and occasionally ripping reporters a new one.
